Not content with my robin, and determined to add to my homemade Christmas stash, this afternoon I decided to have a go at making a couple more felt decorations. And this time I would do things differently.
Previously, I hand stitched all around the edge of my felt shapes. Whilst this gives a good effect and is a lovely hand-sewing project, this time round I thought I’d have a go using my machine.
And the proof is in the Christmas pudding: this method was a lot more successful. The photo shows the pudding (complete with green ric rac and red button garnish) and a Christmas tree (with red gingham ribbon and a string of gold sequins for tinsel and a gold button for a star). Now these are decorations I’ll be proud to hang on my very first Christmas tree this year.
